Transport Minster and immediate past Rivers State governor, Rotimi Amaechi yesterday said that he had suffered a lot and had been accused of being corrupt, stressing that “I suffer a lot about corruption without any proof against me.”
He stated this yesterday while delivering a lecture titled ‘Legislature and Executive Partnership for Effective Performance,’ a retreat for the executive arm of Plateau State government held at the National Institute for Policy and Strategic Studies, NIPSS, Kuru in Jos, in collaboration with Jos Business School and German International Corporation, GIZ.
“I am not a corrupt man. I was harassed, though I fought my way through; they accused me of corruption; I suffered a lot; I suffered a lot about corruption. I don’t like money, I believe once you can feed, you don’t need money again; all those who accumulate are doing so to their detriment,” he said.
On the relationship between the executive and legislature, the Minister of Transport said the success of any administration depends on the relationship between the two arms, adding that the commissioners were the drivers of the synergy and cordiality.
According to him, to have a smooth sail in term of administration, the executive arm, especially the commissioners, must see the lawmakers as partners in progress and have a high sense of regard for the legislature.
